Unwelcome contemplation...beginnings and endings...part of the human path always...

Summerís End

Lead across the sand
Going on into water
Going gladly
To the green and quiet

I linger there
At the edge
Someone lead the way
But Iíve followed
All my life.

The sea
Collapses in,
Against my cold, bare feet
And goes,
Taking away
Those final, faint impressions,
Leaving the sand unmarked.
At last, mine could be the footprints
Leading in
Leading on . . .
I too consider
Going on
To the green and quiet depths.

Soul-grasping sentiments, Leslie. Someone very close to me chose that route. Thank you for sharing. Love, peace, and strength to you,

Reviewed by richard cederberg
There is something frighteningly ambivalent about this piece. Like a bilateral stance of one contemplating suicide and of one attempting to reach farther into the unknown. Where in the world were you emotionally when you wrote this?
Reviewed by Janet Caldwell
I know how this feels. Very rich imagery Leslie. Janet

Poignant and powerful, Leslie. I look forward to witnessing your joys, as well.
